We are delighted to announce that Club captain Victor Ekanem has re-signed for the 2016 season. Victor was deservedly awarded Player of the Year last year following a very impressive first season with the club. He made the most appearances of any Cabo player, with 27 appearances and one goal to his name, being named Man of the Match countless times in the process. He quickly became a fan favourite for his standout displays and was voted Fan’s Player of the Year for 2015 with over 1,500 votes.
Unfortunately in a preseason friendly versus Bohemian FC, Victor suffered a serious injury, rupturing his achilles tendon. Victor has undergone surgery on this injury and is now on the road to recovery. Victor said “I was really looking forward to this season, especially captaining the club through it. I am aiming to hopefully be back for the last 3 to 4 months of the season. I am though looking forward to watching and supporting the lads and being a part of the club again this year.”
Everyone at Cabinteely F.C. wishes Victor a speedy recovery.
